These Spring Jackets Are More Than A Fling

If you’re anything like me your daily walk outside is the highlight of any day!  But with Canada’s unpredictable weather it’s wise to leave the house with a great Spring coat.   My top picks are not only versatile and practical, but fashionable too!


There is a very good reason that trenches never go out of style! The cut is so classic. What makes it modern season to season, is fabric and colour. Try a deconstructed trench, with a beautiful waterfall front. You can really make this look your own by adding a signature belt.  A classic double-breasted trench gets a modern twist in a beautiful beautiful robin’s egg blue.  The quilting is gives it Chanel-esque vibes without the Chanel pricetag.

Denim is another trend that we see every spring. For a fun take on the trend try an 80’s throwback edition, with balloon sleeves done in an acid wash with contrasting stitching and a zip detail. Or go for the more classic silhouette in a coloured denim like a vibrant purple.

Traditionally known to be water and wind repellant the anorak is great option, even more so now because of the athleisure trend.  A drawstring waist and convertible sleeves make a metallic anorak even more versatile.

Most of us have a traditional black moto kicking around in our closet. Try the silhouette in a cotton canvas in cream instead of black. Or a faux-leather version in lavender, which instantly elevates your favourite black tracksuit or denim and t-shirt.

Much like the anorak the utility jacket tends to be more practical. If you’re looking for a twist on the trend, look for details like eyelets, which add a feminine touch to a traditionally masculine aesthetic.
